    Most beautiful story of all first person shooters

    This game absolutely surpassed every other ps4 game to date. When I purchased the ps4 about a year ago, I wasn't that impressed going from the ps3 and xbox 360 to the ps4. I was concerned it was overhyped and may not have been the best purchase. I am a very avid gamer, with my wife as well, and have since purchased dozens of games for the system, all of which I think would have been just as well on ps3 as on ps4, just smoother graphics operations on the ps4 due to technology advancement. THIS IS THE GAME I WAS WAITING FOR!! The very moment it began the first story (there's five), I knew that someone had finally made something worthy of purchasing the ps4. The graphics will blow your mind. Beautiful landscapes that show every little bit of detail and color changes that nobody before has met to my expectations. Seamless and fluid transitions from section to section, never slowing down or degrading the graphics (like other games do to make it seem like the games graphics are better than they really are that make them cartoonish). This game is, without a doubt, the best game I have ever played. It's not like another major FPS that comes out with the same game every year with a few minor changes that doesn't really put any effort in the story, you know which one I'm talking about. The stories were incredible, showing some things that soldiers and marines went through on the ground during world war one. Dice did a really good job putting forth the effort, no Honor, to make this game like a memorial to fully appreciate those that sacrificed everything to change the world during the war. My wife almost started crying during a story, because the game showed the full heartbreak of the men when the smoke cleared and they were able to see the devastation and death of those they depended on and loved like brothers, and made it feel like you were right there with them experiencing it. It's not just a one time play and you never touch it again. The game includes things that you have to find during the missions that can help you in multiplayer, so if you miss them, you have to go back through the story some time later to find those items, its a very good incentive to replay it, which I can see myself playing it several times over the years even without that. On to the multiplayer. Again, it's very smooth, a little confusing at first how to actually change your weapons around, not just the little bar on the bottom, you actually have to go into customize screen to "purchase" your weapons for the assault, medic, support, sniper mods. Once that was figured out it's a pretty standard FPS in actions only: i.e. capture the flag type conquer, rush, that sort of thing. That's where it ends comparing it to "duty" games. Almost everything is destroyable. Somebody hiding in a building, put tank rounds into it and bring the whole thing down. And the best part in my mind, not everyone is a sniper that can hit you clear across the map then bring in drones and airstrikes and get 100 kills per game that way, again you know what i'm talking about, even in past battlefield series they did that. NOT IN THIS ONE. That's right, if you don't want to be a team player and work together, you will not do well and the entire team will suffer, just like in real wars, which I have had the unpleasant experience of. That's all I'm going to say, except multiplayer is worth it. So overall, get the game, you will appreciate the stories and the multiplayer. I could probably get rid of all my other games, have just this one, and be happy for quite a while. Again it feels like this was a memorial to those who served and were forgotten by most, so to DICE if you read this, from a former member of the United States Marine Corps, I thank you from the bottom of my heart at how well you honored the men and women who served.

    One of the best games Ive ever played!

    Posted
    mikey

    Battlefield one is by far one of the best overall games that I have had the pleasure of playing. Dice has had a track record of developing realistic, well thought out games when it comes to the first-person shooter spectrum. Being a veteran I have thoroughly enjoyed the games that dice has produced and look forward to future endeavors that they will conquer. I do believe that it will be a long time coming until even Dice can outdo itself when it comes to battlefield one. Smooth game play is a make it or break it when it comes to a first-person shooter, when it comes to smooth game play a dominating presence has and always will be call of duty. Comparing almost any first-person shooter game play to call of duty will doom a games credibility, or ability to receive a good review. In the case of Battlefield One this could not be more opposite. Battlefield One could be the single most competitive game in comparison to the call of duties that has come out to date. I can even go as far as saying that they have essentially wiped all recent call of duties off the map with the release of BF1(Battlefield One) Being a veteran I also appreciate realism. Not just realism when it comes to the act of shooting your enemy but when it comes to what has been deemed an “active map”. That being, when you shoot a wall with a rocket launcher the wall should explode. Battlefield one is a peak when it comes to Dice game production and active maps. Call of duty attempted to incorporate this in with some more evolving style maps but in the case of an active map battlefield continues to top all other first person shooting games. Story mode, the forgotten gem that all games carry with them giving the avid gamer a small challenger before he or she moves on to multiplayer. BF1 left allot of wiggle room with their campaign. It was short in nature and relatively uneventful, I beat it in the first three hours of game play. This does not take away from the game at all. The story is short but it engulfs you in what is one of the most brutal wars in human history. The opening level is a cinematic adventure that will surly warp your mind into a place that you do not want to escape from. Almost forcing you to continue on with the campaign out of sheer excitement for what they have in store for you next. While the campaign is not a make it or break it in current gaming, multiplayer is. A game can become a legend or become a 15 dollar game at game stop in no time at all, all because of multiplayer. Dice has once again showed how superior they are with what they did on BF1. As previously stated before everything that they bring into the game gives you a much different experience than you would with any other game. You could spend your time toggling through if you want to play team death match or capture the flag on other games like halo, or call of duty etc. Or you could get on BF1 and change your teams, tactics, map composition and completely change how you play the game. This without a doubt is my favorite thing when it comes to this game. I love the idea that its not just the objective changing but how you go about achieving that objective. There is no running around wildly and leaving with a good K/D ratio in BF1. BF1 has become and will forever live on as one of the best games developed in our time. As games change, opinions change, and the world changes I believe that BF1 will continue to be one of the greats. You can’t beat a game that has everything you would need as a gamer who enjoys first person shooters. It’s a one stop shop for a good time and an enjoyable gameplay experience. I highly recommend getting this game or at least trying it out before you continue with your “im a call of duty gamer” view.

    Best Battlefield game since Battlefield 3

    If you were one of many fans of the Battlefield franchise that was burned from the glitches of Battlefield 4 or the lackluster ideas of Battlefield Hardline, rest assure to know that Battlefield 1 is epic and awesome in every way possible. It's not only a drastic improvement over its predecessors, but it rewrites the basic formula with new ideas, a more realistic gameplay setting ripped right from the pages of a war museum, and new gameplay modes that really give gamers more bang for their buck. The new and completely overhauled single-player campaign pulls you in right from the start to you experience and empathize with each playable character as you watch hundreds and sometimes thousands of soldiers horrendously fade into the blood-soaked cloth of their country's pride. Each soldier has their own story to tell and each one dives into one of many significant battles of world War 1. In older games, the characters were just that, "characters." But this time around, the story told is very powerful and the weight of each character dying is felt through more than just vibration feedback from your controller. Furthermore, we all know that the meat of Battlefield 1 lies within its multiplayer mode, which surprisingly sports new gameplay modes that really captivates a true world war like no other online shooter has ever done before. There are two new modes that are a must-play: war pigeon and operations. War pigeon operates similar to capture the flag, but you find and capture a pigeon, send it off in order to call down a war strike on your enemies. It's fun, frantic, and a much welcome breath of fresh air for the franchise. In operations, you attack or defend objectives on massive maps (from jungles to deserts), with small twists in between the rounds to keep things interesting fresh and team oriented. Before each round, there is a narrator that gives a brief history lesson on why it was important that each opposing force needed to win the battle back in world war 1. The sound and setting each give lead way to an impressive gamemode that puts you in the heart of a real battle. A towering zeppelin, bludgeoning train, and a host of WW1 Era vehicle warfare, takes the atmosphere to a whole new level. The class system has been revamped and balanced as well as new weapons and perks encourage players to experiment to find their niche. In conclusion, this game is for long-time Battlefield fans as well as newcomers alike that want to experience first hand what a true world war was like minus the VR tech. This is an absolute must-buy. Trust and believe that you will experience multiple Battlefield moments.

    The folks behind the Battlefield franchise have always tried to be different with their First-Person Shooters. From using Frostbite for a more interactive environment to exploring fireteam co-op play and expanded online participation to bringing these sensibilities to urban law enforcement, DICE and EA have pushed the boundaries. This was my first experience with the very popular Battlefield franchise, so I was excited to experience the first-person gameplay from a historical perspective. So many games in the genre' have explored WWII and modern warfare (wink wink) and SciFi, so it was brilliant that DICE and Electronic Arts looked to The Great War for inspiration. Playing through the aptly titled Battlefield 1 brings to light the gruesome nature of the War to End All Wars by exploring the courageous exploits of actual participants and units, including the Harlem Hellfighters and Lawrence of Arabia with his band of Bedouin Rebels. The beautifully rendered visuals instantly draw the player into the action and explore the war fighting technology of the day. I prefer games to maintain the first-person vantage when operating vehicles, but Battlefield 1 pulls out to RPG-style third person when flying bi-planes or riding horseback. Oddly, operating the tank remains first-person. I have not played online; only the campaign. Gameplay is consistent with other FPS titles. You're confined by borders on the map with specific tasks to achieve to complete a mission. Within those borders, you can go practically anywhere and everywhere, in and out of doors and windows, off of roofs and towers, not just where the authors want you to. This allows you to strategize and engage enemies as you wish and the game knows the difference in hard and soft cover. Changes in lighting as you enter and exit buildings are realistic as your virtual eyes "adjust" to the change and use of binoculars play an important role in being stealthy. Controller button mapping is almost identical to other games, so the learning curve is practically flat. I can't say enough about how beautiful Battlefield 1 is for PS4. In-game graphics are just as impressive as cut scenes, though the CG animation of the cut scenes is cinema quality. Actor performances play a big part in the immersive enjoyment of any game and this cast is excellent. I play on a 55" Sony 4k XBR LED TV, but I don't have a PS4 Pro, so the TV upscales the native HD. The Pro console would only improve on the experience. I would insist that Battlefield 1 is a MUST for any fan of FPS games. Don't expect much action playing as the handsome man from the cover artwork. He doesn't feature much in the game.

    Battlefield has always attempted to give us something different. They have been playing catch up with COD for awhile. But it appears they have something to do it. It maybe a step back in time again, but it's realistic wartime game play and wonderful graphic enhancement makes this exciting. This time the tense war fighting and LARGE maps hit the mark. It's clear EA put great effort into bringing something exciting. Brilliance is finally starting shine a little for EA....finally. I know surprising. It's definitely not what we're are now accustomed to seeing in modern day gun play bUT that's what makes it awesome. It's still a lot of fun and offers tons of space to fight like actual war. However, the gun selections are a bit "off", the time it takes to rank up and the coin you need to buy upgrade in game, can deter some gamers. Nonetheless, you can't go wrong with this game. COD may find itself in the lead again with its new release on Nov. 4 but, Battlefield truly is a Battlefield and is worth every dollar spent to get it. Spoiler: Don't hold your breath over the weapon and perk unlocks you get with Premium Pass, not entirely enticing. Hope this helps! GAME ON!

    Following issues surrounding Battlefield 4, Star Wars Battlefront, and Battlefield Hardline (frostbite engine), I was a bit hesitant to give this game a try. Even after the beta, I was really not interested in this game. I then began watching my friends, streaming their gameplay, and realized that the map, for the beta, was the worst map in the game. I watched some of their other maps, and realized there may actually be potential. Once I decided to give the game a try, I was pleased to find it to be much better than I expected. The maps are larger, and have many paths (no bottlenecks), like I enjoyed in older titles. The attention to detail, and the visuals are both amazing, especially compared to other games out there. The environmental details give the game a very gritty feel, and really helps with the immersion. So why not 5 stars? Well, they have released a patch, to address many issues that they clearly knew existed, when they shipped the game. The problem is, there are several remaining gamplay bugs, which have become apparent since the game's release. For instance, when a player is revived, there are random times, where your gun will not work, until you swap weapons, then back again. When you quit, at the end of a map, it takes forever to get back to the main menu. The best guess is, you remain in the next map, until it completes (people have waited 15 minutes, before giving up). In the beta, some people were having problems using the flamethrower class. They fixed that in the final release, but the same issue now exists in the flamethrower tanks (If I sit in the back seats, no flames are discharged from the tank gun). Once these final issues are addressed, and several guns get balanced, this game should be a FPS to satisfy most gamers for quite a while.

    A review of the single player campaign

    Posted

    As someone who play games mainly for the single player, I'll be reviewing the single player portion of Battlefield 1. Battlefield games traditionally have lousy single player stories. For BF1, the story fares better. The single player is broken down into five separate stories that follows the war from five perspectives: a British tank driver, an American pilot, an Italian elite soldier, an Australian message runner, and a Bedouin rebel. Most stories have four missions though some have only two. The stories for each are so brief that you don't really have enough time to bond with each character. Nevertheless, you're given enough to care about their mission, see their personalities, and understand their motivation. Gameplay wise, the story missions are diverse with the range of tactics you use. While most missions are really linear, some of them take a more sandbox approach with how you approach your objective. What's great about the single player is that it helps prepare you for the multiplayer game if you're interested in that aspect. The sound design and graphics are wonderful just to note. Performance wise, framerate seems to be stable at 60 fps most of the time. If you're playing on the Pro, the resolution will constantly be 1080p as oppose to the dynamic resolution at 900p. Overall, it took me 8-10 hours to finish the campaign since I also finished all the codex (challenges) and collected all the field manuals. If you can find the game on sale, I would recommend it for the single player content though the game is a no brainer if you're into multiplayer.

    Not what I expected

    When reading reviews, I expected to see and play a game that just blew COD out of the water. That is not what I found. Do not get me wrong, this is a great game, but I do not believe it to be leaps and bounds above COD. I didn't feel the playing graphics were as good as COD, but the in-game "movies" were very crisp and clear. The story itself was fantastic and the settings were great as well. The feel is similar but also a little different because the buttons had different functions. The maps are huge and the ability to use things such as tanks and planes were pretty cool during the online multiplayer. Where I grew impatient with the game was I didn't feel the fighting mechanics were as crisp, especially the aiming and tracking while aiming. The other area of irritation came with the actual length of online game play. I played in a match that too 57 minutes to finish and that is not an exaggeration...it displayed at the end of the match. It was because of the players dropping in and out of the matches. COD has a 10 minute time limit I believe or first one to 75. Battlefield was first to 100 I believe. All in all its a very solid game especially for someone that has time to set and wait because it takes a little longer to load a lot of it's matches as well. The game play is easy to pick up and the story is great. The graphic as good but nothing special. The weapons are good and there is a good variety. I enjoyed it but it didn't make me forget about COD like others claim.
